MOSCOW — Russian officials said Monday they have detained an accomplice of the suicide bombers that attacked Moscow's subway system in April, killing 40 people and wounding dozens.
The man was arrested in the southern province of Dagestan, the National Anti-Terror Committee said in a statement. The mostly Muslim area, which lies next to Chechnya, has been plagued by insurgent violence for years.
The committee said the man, who was not identified, had arranged transportation and lodging for the two suicide bombers, who later were discovered to be widows of Islamic militants. A Chechen separatist militant leader claimed responsibility for the bombings.
